A Windsor choir is holding a free concert next week and members of the audience could well end up becoming members.
Windsor Soundswell Choir is presenting the concert on Tuesday, March 28, at Trinity St Stephen First School in Vansittart Road, where members meet for rehearsals every Tuesday evening during term time.
The mixed choir has been running for eight years and welcomes new members, especially tenors and basses. No experience is needed and there are no auditions.
The concert, which starts at 8pm, consists of a short programme of music from the choir’s repertoire which ranges from gospel songs, musicals, and folk songs from all over the world to classics and pop songs. There will also be piano pieces from music director Dr Guy Bunce and accompanist Ingrid Keedy.
Afterwards there will be refreshments and a chance for people to chat to members of the choir as well as a collection in aid of the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service, which is raising money to build a children's hospice in Maidenhead.
Mary Bastow, who chairs the choir committee, said: “We are raising money for the newly-built hospice. As we are a choir, we specifically wanted to provide the software needed to allow sick children to enjoy and create music.”
Anyone who cannot make the concert but would like to become involved is still welcome to come to Trinity St Stephen school any Tuesday from 7.30 to 9.30pm.
There is some parking at the school and plenty of parking at Windsor Boys’ School nearby.
